Christian Science was presented to me at a time when my affairs seemed to be going decidedly wrong. A dear friend, though not herself a student of Christian Science, had borrowed for me the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, from one who was a firm believer in its teachings. For some time I had been wearing glasses for a serious eye trouble which the oculist had said would increase with my age; but I began to read Science and Health without putting on my glasses, and they have never been worn since. Though reading and sewing a great deal, I have had no trouble whatever during the past four years.

Many other proofs of the beauty and power of Christian Science have been received. Two days before Christmas, 1914, my little girl was taken violently ill with all the symptoms of a fever. She had always been a strong and happy child, who did not give in to ailments readily, but she seemed completely prostrated at this time. We relied on Christian Science treatments, and though she stayed in bed until Christmas day, she got up then and enjoyed the festivities. Two days later she was in a theatrical performance in which she had quite a part, and the following week played every evening and five matinees. My fear during this time would seem sometimes to gain the mastery, while that of our friends and relatives also was very great. Just one week after Christmas she was again taken ill, while at the theater, and did not seem able to go on for the last act. I was obliged to go a few doors away to telephone to the practitioner for help, which was given at once. Upon my return the child was much better, and more than willing to go on and take her part. She had one more treatment the next morning, and played until the end of the engagement.
